Hi all jeff here. I currently have unused websapce on my host so I was thinking of setting up a centeral site for all of us BB users as from what i can see there is lots of good free software out there but it seems to be scattered around. Different from Blackberry forums in that instead of linking to the software it would actually be hosted on the site.

The site would host all kinds of freeware for BB and articles/news/hacks,tips and tricks, all related to our Black Berrys and members would be free to submit there own news and articles, etc..... Of course the site would be completley free and would be in no way intended to compete with this site, (i mean come on like anyone could, Blackberry forums rock :smile: ) it would just be another resource for all of us to use. I do apologize if this idea has been mentioned or if there is already antoher site like this

Just wanted to get some feedback before i make a site, then realize that no one cares,haha

i agree eric, what i am proposing is one site with all these great apps in one spot so we dont have to go searching all over to download them, there is a list of great apps, but it still requires you to visit lots of different sites to get them. My idea is to have them all available to d/l in one location. what do you think?

Please don't forget to read the "Software Catalog" section of
http://www.blackberryforums.com/showthread.php?t=9539

Also, check out my BlackBerry FAQ link below. Many of the FAQ articles link to a lot of useful software that should be added to any online software catalog.

I agree, it would be key if a user could access the site and download the OTA applications via the BB.

Great Idea!!

I will try to incorporate OTA downloads and browsing from our BB's should be accomplished with relative ease, great suggestions, keep them coming

Themes and (many) ringtones aren't truly freeware in the legal sense of the term, but I'd imagine they would be popular additions to your site.

Something I'd really like to see is a comprehensive BB software catalog, along the lines of Mark's efforts, along with user reviews/ratings. Handango and the like have this capacity, but rarely feature any useful comments. I'm sure our rather vocal breathren can do better. :)

this feed back is great I will try to have as many ringtones as possible with the ability for users to upload others for the community, and I am working on the reviews section with the ability to post comments on the reviews as well

something like this would be great. As long as it has descriptions of the software and a search engine that would be awesome.

Really looking forward to enjoying your site once it is up and running. Do you have any guesses as to when a grand opening may happen?

sure why not


lol good feedback, ha, I have been tracking down links to apps and freeware, there kind of hard to find, but once the site opens up I am hoping our members will also help submit any links they come across. So far I have about 17 links to software and about 10 free ware programs, lots of ringtones and lots of wallpaper images & the forums are almost done.

The news and review sections are up and ready for members to submit news & reviews as well as comment on them, Search engine is completed with the ability to search the following sections:

Articles
Software
Images
Ringtones
Web Links
Comments
Forums
Reviews
Freeware Programs
FAQ's

And pretty much every piece of info on the site :)

Release date might get moved up if I can get it finished sooner, I have the next to days off so we will see. I will keep you updated.
